    Good morning everyone.

    My name is Chris and I work at AlgaGen. I just have the typical noob queastions.

    My wife gave me permission to finally start a reef tank(on a budget). Where should I start? I am thinking 10-30 gallons for my office.

    Welcome home, you will love it here!

    Bigger is better because it’s more forgiving to dosing errors or other “noob” errors. The largest tank you can afford on your budget would be my advice. 75 gallon was my first, for example.

    Keep us posted with the build with lots of pics! :)
